Tracy Morgan accident: Friends and celebrities take to social media

Comedian Tracy Morgan is in critical condition after a fatal six-vehicle accident in New Jersey. The 45-year-old was traveling with six others, one of whom was killed, in a limo bus on the New Jersey Turnpike when the accident occurred about 1 a.m. Saturday. Here are reactions from the former “30 Rock” and “Saturday Night Live” star’s friends and other celebrities.

Later Saturday, the dead man was named as James McNair, also known as “Uncle Jimmy Mack.”






Instagram from comic Ardie Fuqua, who opened for Morgan Friday night (Fuqua was also injured in the accident and is listed in critical condition):

“This is what it looks like from the stage to see a standing ovation from 1500 people. Then we traveled back to NYC in style in a luxury Mercedes Sprinter. Road life is a good life!”
